As part of the UN Global Compact and its Sustainable Development Goals, the Oetker Collection has announced its ban of plastic at all ten of its luxury properties. As part of its corporate social responsibility, the hospitality brand has begun to phase out the use of disposable plastics at all of its locations, with a full ban to be implemented by the end of 2018. The plan runs alongside other sustainability commitments, including a goal to replace plastic bottles with glass bottles and install water filtration systems. The following plastic elements have been or will be banned at Oetker properties throughout 2018:

  • Plastic straws
  • Plastic spoons
  • Plastic cups
  • Plastic glass cover in rooms
  • Plastic wrapping of individual sugar cubes
  • Plastic Q-tips and cottons swabs

By implementing the changes, Oetker hopes to raise eco-friendly awareness among both employees and guests alike. The modifications are designed to help reduce Oetker’s environmental footprint while addressing both environmental and economic issues.
